Death By Government Incompetence

What a way to die – waiting on bureaucrats to get around to dealing with your critical medical emergency and finding them “out of the office”: Time ran out for Linda Rolain. The Las Vegas woman died Monday, less than two weeks after her family went public with details of how enrollment trouble through the […]

Obamacare Death Panels Rising

People who thought it was ridiculous that health care rationing would be a core part of Obamacare (and thus the instantiation of the “Death Panel” monicker) probably were the same dupes to think Obamacare would let you keep your doctor, keep your insurance, lower your cost and expand coverage. And of course these same gullible […]

ObamaCare Will Uninsure More People, Not Insure More People

Major Update At End It’s becoming a sad, laughable fact. DC Political Spin (aka, lying to the naive masses) has hit an all time new level dishonesty under the Democrats and President Obama. If you like your insurance, you can keep it If you like your doctor(s), you can keep them Obamacare makes insurance affordable […]

ObamaCare Implosion: Pay Much More, Get Much Less

Published by under Obamacare

Alternate Title: There Always Was Going To Be Death Panels Watching liberal, activist government crash and burn on Obamacare is both laughable and sad. Laughable because of all the snake oil people fell for because they want hand outs. Sad, because the lesson to be learned here will be painful, and may even be deadly. […]

Healthcare.gov: 10 Lbs Of “Stuff” In A 3 Year Schedule

I have been doing more research on the programmatic and technical management of the Healthcare.gov program, and have identified the main reasons ObamaCare’s roll out was such a disaster. Bottom Line: Too much scope in too short a time. And the root cause of that was government taking on more than it knew how to […]

ObamaCare: A Big-Gov Botch-Job Of Epic Proportions

The Congressional hearings yesterday went as usual – lot of hot air, lot of politicians posturing and nothing new. Truth be told, the industry leaders who worked pieces of ObamaCare were 100% right and forthcoming when they testified. They do NOT deserve blame for this fiasco. This mess is ALL on the government organization responsible […]

Survey Says! Healthcare.gov To Launch ObamaCare Death Spiral

Published by under Obamacare

Apparently the disastrous launch of Obamacare, via the Big-Gov Botch-Job that is Healthcare.gov, has left an impression on the American public. A very bad impression: Just 12% of people questioned in a CBS News poll released Tuesday say they think the process is going well, with nearly half saying it’s not going well and nearly […]

Healthcare.gov A Huge Gov-Run Botch-Job

Major Update At The End In my last post I assessed the technical challenges and issues with the launch of Obamacare. In that post I presented the clear signs of a government program technically in over their heads. I pointed to this chart of the core information traffic cop (the Federal Services Data Hub) as […]

Anatomy Of A Government FUBAR – ObamaCare Style

Buckle up Ladies and Gents – this is going to be a long post. I have been scouring the internet for clues to the ObamaCare debacle to see if I can figure out how bad it is, and how long it will take to fix. This is basically what I do in my day job. […]

GOP Needs To Hold The Line

¬† Major Update: Ezra Klein interviews someone directly familiar with Obamacare’s technical issues, and he confirms my predictions¬† – this is not going to get fixed soon: So I think some of the problem is the Obama administration never brought in heavyweight IT people to oversee this. Are there no Democrats in Silicon Valley? Kathleen […]
